Pasquale Rotella and Insomniac received a lot of flack from fans due to the abc and forth on EDC Las Vegas and the back and forth on whether it would be hosted during its originally scheduled dates in May or moved to fall dates later in the year.
After confirming the event would be hosted in May and opening up and encouraging fans to make hotel and shuttle bookings, etc in lieu of the event, soon after Insomniac announced their plan did not meet the current government restrictions and they had to push the festival to October 22-24, 2021.
Starting off by thanking the fans who have stayed loyal and stuck with them through the ups and downs with regards to EDC Las Vegas saying “First, I want to thank those who showed support through the EDC date change, while the team and I worked to address everyone’s concerns. You give me the strength to keep moving forward. It’s a privilege to be able to do what I do & I appreciate every moment.”
Looking ahead, he summed up the upcoming Insomniac events set for later this year. HARD Summer is currently scheduled to be the first large festival to return in-person to SoCal over the weekend of July 31 – August 1. Next, it will be followed by Beyond Wonderland also in SoCall set for August 27-28, 2021 at the Nos Events Center.
While the overall tone was optimistic, Rotella kept it real saying, “With the return of live events around the corner, we recognize challenges may still exist. We have backup dates for all events just in case and will communicate them to you in advance.
Reassuring fans and ticket holders, he went on to say, “In the event of change, we will offer refunds or transfers.”
He ended by saying, “I see beautiful things for our community on the horizon and I look forward to reuniting on the dancefloor soon.”
Among other things, Rotella also “leaked” the stacked lineup for Beyond Wonderland, 2021. Names like Diplo, Tiesto, Dillon Francis, Alison Wonderland and KSHMR are set to grace the lineup for the festival and tickets go on sale on Thursday, May 13.
